BBST's Gus Evans knows breaststroke

It's unknown whether Gus Evans chose the breaststroke or the breaststroke chose him.

But the BBST sophomore, who has spent this season working on expanding his repertoire of swimming strokes, has no problem keeping it real about what butters his swimming bread.

"I'd like to say I'm good at the other strokes, but I'm really not," Evans said. "Breaststroke is really the one stroke that I get."

That fact was spread statewide after Evans dropped considerable time on his breaststroke at the end of last year, his freshman season, and wound up finishing second at the 2A state meet to Sehome's Austin Fish, who earned Swimmer of the Meet honors for the second straight year.
